 9th Annual UClub Burns Supper

Friday, Jan. 24, 2020

Whisky, haggis, and poetry are on the bill of fare for the UClub’s 9th Annual Burns Supper. The evening will feature a bagpipe procession, the presentation of the haggis, and a special dinner menu. Celebrate all things Scottish!

 The UClub's Burns Supper has become a warm and bright tradition, giving us all something to look forward to during the dark of winter.

Come celebrate the life of Robert Burns, toast the haggis, and drink from the Cup of Kindness. We guarantee you will find old friends and new. 

Our evening will begin with cocktails in the living room at 6:00 p.m.  At 7:00 p.m., a bagpipe procession will lead us into the dining room for a fabulous meal complete with neeps and tatties, song and poetry.    

The event is black tie optional, and dress tends to be semi-formal, with  ladies in evening attire and gentlemen in suits, tuxedos, or traditional kilts, but the atmosphere is anything but stuffy.

This year’s event will be hosted by UClub member Duncan C. Hunter, L.Th., M.Ed, who was born in Scotland and studied theology at the University of Glasgow. 

Tickets are $65 per person. Seating is limited and reservations are required by Tuesday, January 21. This event is presented by the University Club of Albany Foundation, Inc., and one need not be a member of the University Club to attend.
